Nature of Program

The nature of the Electronic Media program at Freed-Hardeman is two-fold:

First, it serves as a training ground for students interested in the field of broadcast communication. Campus and community radio station, WFHU, is a 10,500 watt non-commercial/educational FM broadcast station that provides "real world" experience for training students in: air-talent, studio production, sports play-by-play, broadcast news reporting, media management, and promotions & marketing.

Secondly, the two facilities offer the community access to programming not readily available through other media outlets. WFHU provides an alternative for listeners. WFHU, 91.5 the Lion provides the Henderson community with local high school football and FHU basketball play-by-play coverage, live-remote broadcast from community events around town, local community service projects using broadcast skills, as well as severe weather coverage year-round.

You do not have to be a communications major to work with WFHU. Many student workers are involved in other programs at Freed-Hardeman.
